It’s been three months without a single blog entry, and the last one (and this one as well) has been a video entry. I assume many of you might be wondering whether the blog is dead or not.
No, it’s not! The blog is not dead!
I intend to get back into writing much more in the following months. I miss it so much, I miss the depth of thinking and researching that writing forced on me.
I’ll be back soon…ish, because in the meantime Baby#2 and Baby#3 joined the RIP Family a couple of days ago, and they’re both healthy 🙂
We breathed a huge, HUGE, sigh of relief! It’s been a complicated pregnancy, with conditions on both the mother and the fetuses, and the outcome was not guaranteed to be good.
They came out 4 weeks before due date, and they’re small, very small. But they’re fine so far.
The sensation is that we won the “quarter-final” of something. We should celebrate, ok, but the “tournament” is not finished yet.
Life is still a mess, I’d say even messier than before. But I’m a bit more optimistic than a few months ago and I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
And I can’t thank my savings enough for allowing me to focus on what really matters today instead of having to worry about putting food on our table (for the next 17 years even assuming we keep spending 8k CHF per month and income drops to zero).
FIRE might be dead, but healthy personal finance habits still rock!
So… enjoy our Quarterly (2021 Q3) Financial Update 🙂
TL;DR of the financial quarter for household RIP NW: +42k CHF / +62k EUR.
All time high. I’d say a good month despite a sideways market.
